Pedro Pascal is on top of the world these days.

Not only is Pascal currently dominating television airwaves with HBO’s The Last of Us, but he’s also set to make his return as Din Djarin when season three of The Mandalorian premieres on Wednesday, March 1.

As such, Pascal has spent recent weeks and months doing tons of publicity, including this recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show which saw the 47-year-old star explain why he doesn’t like doing The Mandalorian voice for children.

“People come up to me and ask me to do the voice for their kids. But I think it sounds inappropriate because it is a breathy, low-register bedroom voice,” Pascal said during a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show, which airs on Friday.

As mentioned above, the newest season of The Mandalorian hits Disney+ next Wednesday. Pascal is also currently starring in HBO’s hit post-apocalyptic series The Last of Us, which has three episodes left in its acclaimed first season.

In addition to Pascal in the potentially Emmy-winning role of Joel Miller, The Last of Us features Bella Ramsey as Ellie Williams, Gabriel Luna as Tommy Miller, Merle Dandridge as Marlene, and various guest stars such as Murray Bartlett, Nick Offerman, and Melanie Lynskey.

In The Mandalorian, Pascal stars alongside the likes of Giancarlo Esposito, Katee Sackhoff, Carl Weathers, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, Amy Sedaris, Christopher Lloyd, and Time Meadows. Season 3 will be helmed by directors such as Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa, Carl Weathers, Lee Isaac Chung, Peter Ramsey, and Rachel Morrison.
